Russian Piano Classics IV: Lifschitz & Volodin At Two Pianos

Russian Piano Classics IV: Lifschitz & Volodin at Two Pianos

Russian Piano Classics IV: Lifschitz & Volodin at Two Pianos


This event is part of the ‘Russian Piano Classics‘ Series.

MEDTNER Two Pieces, Op. 58
RACHMANINOV Suite No. 2 for Two Pianos, Op. 17
STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring

The two-piano works in this closing concert are dedicated to dynamic Russian romanticism and the triumphant artistic return amidst hardships of three composers: Medtner’s Op. 58 reflects a near-ritualistic insistence to compose daily despite the dangers of war; Rachmaninov’s mighty Suite No. 2 proves his talent again after the cold reception of his First Symphony; and the ‘near-riot’ premiere of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring only adds on its eminence!


俄羅斯鋼琴經典系列最後一場音樂會,選來三首體現百般歷練、意味深長的雙鋼琴作品,體現三位作曲大師在人生低潮時堅毅不屈的精神。麥哲納《為雙鋼琴而作的兩首小品》反映著作曲家於戰亂時堅持創作的情境;拉赫曼尼諾夫的《第二號組曲》 是繼其第一號交響曲首演失敗後重振聲威之作;而當年首演引起騷亂的史特拉汶斯基《春之祭》無疑更令人翹首以待!
